About the Book

You're ready to get a cat, but which feline is the purr-fect fit for you? From the experts who brought you How to Speak Cat, learn all about 71 different cat breeds so you can find your furr-ever friend right meow!

From Russian Blues and Munchkins to Maine Coons and Persians, this comprehensive guide gives an overview of 71 different cat breeds. Each profile includes the breed's "cat stats": country of origin, size, coat colour and pattern, grooming difficulty, and cat-titude. With the help of veterinarian Dr. Gary Weitzman and cat behaviorist Mieshelle Nagelschneider, kids will also learn how to choose the right cat for them, how to take care of their new feline friend, and how to understand its behavior. Fun feature spreads cover cats in popular culture, prehistoric cats, and the house cat's wild cousins. This comprehensive guide is perfect for the cat-crazy kid, and is an excellent reference for families who are adopting their first furry family member.
